The Stanford Prison Experiment

  • 124 min
  • Directed by: Kyle Patrick Alvarez
  • Cast: Billy Crudup/Ezra Miller/Michael Angarano/Moises Arias/Nicholas Braun/Gaius Charles/Keir Gilchrist/Ki Hong Lee/Thomas Mann

Jailhouse mock.

A psychology professor (Billy Crudup) conducts a social experiment in which student volunteers are split into two groups - prisoners and guards - and taken to occupy a simulated prison. As the participants settle into their roles, reality starts to warp, and the increasingly intense situation spirals dangerously out of control. EIFF is delighted to welcome back director Kyle Patrick Alvarez (Easier With Practice) with his brilliantly executed dramatisation of this controversial true story, featuring superb performances from Crudup and the young, rising-star ensemble cast.
